Home to roost

Supreme Court questions Utah bigamy law in case against officer.

The Left ripped Sen. Rick Santorum for asking it, but it's a legitimate question: if society can't pass laws outlawing homosexual activity, then what is the objective basis for outlawing polygamy? They ripped him not because the question was illegitimate but because there was no answer.

Now the folks in Utah might find themselves in a situation where polygamy is technically illegal but not prosecuted: exactly where homosexuality was until recently.

If I had a nickel every time the Left expressed contempt at "slippery slope" arguments... But the slope is indeed slippery when we have nothing to hold on to, and morality is as changeable as whim, or subject to activist judges.
